    A dream come true for poor Sikh families

    The Hindu : Cities / Hyderabad : A dream come true for poor Sikh families

    It was a dream come true for 53-year-old Babu Singh Granthi on Sunday. His son Karnal Singh's marriage was conducted in a grand manner in the presence of over 25,000 Sikhs and religious heads at the Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala, Kishanbagh.

    The guests were served with delicious food and all this was organised free of cost.

    “With my financial constraints, performing my son's marriage in such a grand manner was beyond my limits. I am happy and thankful to the Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala,” said Mr. Singh.

    The Prabandhak Committee Gurudwara Saheb Baram Bala organised mass marriages for economically poor 21 Sikh couples.

    The committee made all the arrangements, including accommodation, guru-ka-langar (breakfast, lunch etc) for two days for family members of the bride and bridegroom, said committee president S. Harban Singh.
    The marriages were performed in a befitting manner and ceremonies like Sagai were conducted on Saturday and ‘Lawan Phere' (solemnising of marriages) on Sunday.

    Home Minister P. Sabitha Indra Reddy graced the occasion and handed over cheques worth Rs. 15,000 each to the couple under the Minorities Welfare Department scheme.

    All good social and reform work being done by Sikhs is outside Punjab. If anything at all is there in Punjab, it is only tokenism. Even organisations such as Pingalwara founded by Bhagat Puran Singh and Khalsa Orphanage started by Bhai Vir Singh are wearing down their robustness and enthusiasm.
